Today, 17 happy campers showed up for our meeting and a great breakfast.
Our only guest and speaker was Marco Costa who is with the Department of Human Resources Social Development Canada. Marco gave an excellent presentation relating to pensions for C.P.P. and O.A.S. a subject we are all interested to learn more about. A few of our members are already in this league, having attained 60 plus years, but, most have this to look forward to, God willing, in the years to come. Information about CPP and OAS is just a phone call away 1 800 277 9914 or Internet at www.sdc.gc.ca.
What I gathered from Marco's talk is that there is enough money in the coffers for us to enjoy our respective pensions and our children do not have to worry about us dipping into their contributions! It was also mentioned that, from time to time, there are seminars relating to pensions and would be well worth attending to glean pertinent information. Watch out for these seminars advertised in your local newspaper.
Don't forget Winefest Friday, March 3rd.

Have an enjoyable week and, hopefully, see you next Tuesday. Kim.
Mr. Smith goes to the doctor's office to get his wife's test results.
The lab technician says to him, "I'm very sorry sir, but, we've had a bit of a problem. At the same time we sent your wife's samples to the lab, the lab also received samples from another Mrs. Smith and now we're not sure which results are your wife's. But, frankly, its either bad news or terrible news!"
"What do you mean!" asked Mr. Smith.
"Well, one Mrs. Smith tested positive for Alzheimer's and the other Mrs. Smith has tested positive for AIDS, and we can't tell which one is your wife's test."
"This is terrible!" cries Mr. Smith, "Can't we do the test over?"
"Normally, yes." Says the technician, "but, you have Blue Cross Health Care and they won't pay for these expensive tests more than once." "Well, what am I supposed to do now?" asked Mr. Smith.
"Blue Cross recommends that you drop your wife off in the middle of town and if she finds her way home, don't sleep with her." Replied the technician.
